#FARPost has been informed that the Bidvest Group is interested in taking over from Absa as the PSL’s sponsor from next season.
What happens to Bidvest Wits? The club is on the verge of being sold.
Absa and the PSL recently parted ways. Absa had been the League’s main sponsor since 2007.
Now FARPost sources confirm that the Bidvest Group could step in to bankroll the League, which may also apparently increase to 18 teams.
The reason there could be an increase in teams is because of the League being forced into a break due to the Coronavirus and if cancelled, the League is apparently contemplating doing away with relegation and promoting two teams, which will then amount to 18 teams.
If this happens, the League would then relegate four teams at the end of next season, 2020/21, to revert back to the 16-team League.
